Top down sweater knitting is the topic of this mini class with Isabell! We will be diving into the 'secrets' of this construction technique. How does it work? What do we have to do, and when do we have to do it to get the results we want? Isabell will guide us through different top down sweater construction methods and give ideas on how, when and where to adjust sweaters to your liking and body shape. Examples of various sweaters will be shown during class.
Isabell is a qualified dressmaker who became a knitwear designer almost by accident! People kept asking her how she made things, so she published her notes on her blog. When she discovered Ravelry she gradually started to publish more and more designs. It wasn’t long before she had gained a large and dedicated following for her fresh, modern, and comfortable sweaters and accessories. Thoroughly modern, she keeps a low profile a Ravelry page but no website but reaches knitters around the world by publishing her patterns in multiple languages, including English, German, French, Italian, Danish, and Spanish. She lives in a small town in southern Germany but travels far and wide, to teach and for pleasure.
Isabell’s designs have been published in Laine Magazine, Amirisu and Vogue Knitting. She has also produced beautiful designs for Malabrigo Yarns, Quince & Co and Swans Island, all in her signature streamlined and contemporary style.
Isabell’s stunning patterns can be found in her Ravelry store.
